A Good Friend, A Good Blogger and A Great Agent
Well, you have to put them in some order, obviously, but I’d say they are all equal.
We’ve been friends on ActiveRain for several years now, and as it always is, our meeting F2F was very special.
I’ve gotten to know Kathy quite well through her blogging, and if you are not a fan you will be if you take a look. So go do so if you don't already know her!!
Kathy KNOWS the California desert well and shares her thoughts and insights about everything you need to know about La Quinta and surrounding areas on ActiveRain, Facebook and elsewhere. I read her posts all the time and have a great deal of respect for her as a fellow blogger.
Kathy also helped a family member of mine to find rental for about 5 months at the beginning of this year. This was a challenge, on many fronts. My aunt was in Massachusetts, and thankfully is pretty Internet-savvy, because she wasn’t making a trip to view properties and rented a property sight-unseen based on her needs and Kathy’s knowledge and recommendations.A winning combination!
It was a great property and in walking distance to the El Paseo area with shopping and dining. What more could you want for 5 months in the desert?
Big surprise…the owner/landlord sold another home and moved the furniture into one of the main rooms of the unit after the contract was signed and designed that room as off limits. What a surprise when Kathy and my Aunt arrived!!
Kathy went far and beyond to welcome my Aunt, get her at the airport, and get her settled but also to help work through the issues with the landlord. It all worked out, and it took time, but this was all done with complaint. It’s very clear that Kathy does whatever needs to be done to help her clients.
We also have a rental property in the desert and Kathy has been a god-send providing recommended vendors for plumbing and handyman services.
As I have found with so many other Rainers I have had the great fortune to meet in person, Kathy is exactly as I expected her to be, and more. The power os ActiveRain was so obvious - had it not been for AR and blogging, Kathy and I would not have met and gotten to be friends!
Plus I now know her husband who handles property management in the desert. What a terrific resource!
Moving to La Quinta or nearby? Kathy Showe is the person to call!
